The Arrowverse series is a new take on the story of Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and his true love, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch). Be warned: there are spoilers below if you’re not yet caught up on season one.

The first season of the Arrowverse series saw Superman battle his Kryptonian half-brother Tal-Rho/Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner) while the Kent family adjusted to life in Smallville.

The season ended with a huge cliffhanger as Natalie, the daughter an alternate version of Lois had with John (Wole Parks) on his Earth, crash landed at the Kent farm. Natalie was stunned to see her mother, alive and well, standing beside the man who supposedly murdered her.

Season one might have been a lot to deal with, but family tensions on the Arrowverse series aren’t going to stop there.

Speaking ahead of season two, series showrunner Todd Helbing told TV Insider that the new episodes will dig further into the history of the Lane family and see the arrival of Lois’s sister Lucy (Jenna Dewan).

"With all of our cast, I think last year we found out the type of stories we can tell, with regards to Lois's miscarriage episode," he said. "So we wanted to really dive into the history of the Lane family, introduce Lucy and give the audience an understanding about why Lois is the way she is, why [General] Lane (Dylan Walsh) is the way he is, why Lois hadn't talked about Lucy, why [General ] Lane never talked about their mother, and then really fold that into the couple to see how they would deal with a situation like that."

He continued: "When I thought about Lois Lane's character and how her relationship with [General] Lane had evolved over the first season, it really felt like, you know, you can go two ways when something like that happens to you: You either go the way of Lois if you're an alpha type, like 'I can compartmentalise, I can just deal with trauma and move on.' And in a lot of ways that makes a perfect partner for Superman, right? Because she's so strong and able to not worry about him every time he goes out to save the world.

"But then there's the flip side, where you feel like you're missing something in your life and so that is kind of what we explore with Lucy."

Be sure to read our review of the first season as it airs on UK screens, whilst RadioTimes.com has also pondered the meaning behind Superman & Lois’ timeslot in the BBC One schedules.

In the meantime, as the first run is now available to watch in its entirety on BBC iPlayer, many will be wondering how far away the new episodes are.

So, without further ado, here is all you need to know about Superman & Lois season 2.

Superman & Lois season 2 premieres in the US on The CW on January 11, 2022.

A UK release date has yet to be confirmed but we shall be sure to update this when it arrives.

As the first season was only just released in its entirety in the UK on BBC iPlayer and airing weekly on BBC One, we imagine it will be quite the wait until the second run finds its way to UK shores.

We will be sure to update you on the UK release date as soon as it is confirmed.

Superman & Lois season 2 trailer

We have an official behind-the-scenes clip for the second season that was released in October 2021 as part of the DC FanDome event.

The clip shows stars Elizabeth Tulloch (Lois Lane) and Alex Garfin (Jordan Kent) giving a tour of the Kent farm set.

Superman & Lois has also released a first trailer, hinting at tension between Clark and newcomer Ian Bohen, who plays a man working for the Department of Defense, Lt Mitch Anderson.

Anderson tries to get Superman to declare his allegiance to the US.

"You're more of a liability than a hero," Anderson says.

However, Kent replies: "What you asked for was my allegiance to America… I gave it to the world a long time ago."

Fans in the US won’t have much longer to wait for the new episodes of Clark and Lois’ story.

Superman & Lois season 1 is available now as a box set on BBC iPlayer and continues weekly on Saturday evenings on BBC One.
